Tapas with a kick: Ember Yard Restaurant Review

Ember Yard is a great place for a casual but chic night out in London making it perfect for both friends get togethers or a date night. I went here for the latter and absolutely loved it. The food was good, the atmosphere was great, and the service was amazing. One of our dishes was mistakenly sent to another table (the pork ribs) so because we had to wait longer to get ours they have taken it out from our bill which I thought was a very nice touch as many other restaurants would have just made some lame excuse. 
But let`s talk about the food. We started off with some bream carpaccio with blood orange (14/20). This was good but not as good as the one we had in Zucca and I thought the bream could have been cut thiner.

A refreshing leaf salad with carrots and raddish (14/20).

Followed by chargrilled cod with beans (18/20). This was my favourite dish of the night. I love beans and these beans were absolutely delicious!

Iberico pork fat chips with chorizo ketchup (10/20). This dish could have had so much potential, unfortunately the chips were far too dry and a bit plain.

The showstopper: chargrilled Iberico pork ribs (18/20). Another really delicious dish that left us licking our fingers. Each their own fingers to make it clear.

As a dessert I had this really lovely brown butter panna cotta with ice cream and spiced biscuit (16/20). I`m not usually a big fan of panna cottas as I think it`s hard to get a really amazing one and this one was pretty much the best panna cotta I`ve had.

Date, walnut and quince cake (13/20). This tasted a bit like sticky toffee pudding which don`t get me wrong I like but I was expecting slightly more from this.

Overall score: 15/20
